, and here in the united states there is a tremendous amount of self-pity that is encouraged by the victim. one of the things in my ratio is it's the michael medved show where we're proud to say everyday i am not a victim, the idea of american victimhood suggest that our standard of living and our difficulties and our choices, it's all much lower, we can't live the kind of lives that our parents live and it's getting worse. everyone has heard this. it is nonsense. now, robert rector rodger at heritage writer in the building has done terrific work on this and i quote him extensively in the book. if you actually look at any meaningful measure of living standards in the united states, the progress under capless american, particularly since 1980, has been dazzling, has been unprecedented. the options that are available to people, the extended life expectancy, college, we're now at at a stage where the majority of american young people in every ethnic group, are pursuing some form of post high school graduation after they graduate from high school. this is phenomenal. sometimes that education m

's actually owed. if you examine the revenue streams of the united states, it jumps out at you. that we're collecting about 80% or even somewhat less than that of what's actually owed.he money that was actually owed under the current rates, we'd be doing very well. we'd have offshore tax havens, abusive tax shelters, a tax gap, a difference between what's owed and what's paid and we have a tax system that is completely out of date. we have a tax system that was designed at a time we did not have to be worried about the competitive position of the united states. now we do. the world has changed and our revenue system has not kept pace. instead it is hemorrhaged with offshore tax havens costing us, according to the permanent subcommittee on investigations, over $100 billion a year in lost revenue. if anyone doubts a a pro-ration of offshore tax havens, i would ask them to google offshore hacks havens. we did that last year and got over a million hits including my favorite, live offshore tax free by putting your funds in offshore tax havens. mr. president, the reality is this, with we have

the united states of america. i am an independent, i do not vote one way or another, i vote according to a person. i do believe that this president has an agenda to bankrupt this country. i believe the debt that is his plan. the people keep saying that republicans have not put forth anything. to say, of argument here, what about selling insurance across state lines? they brought that up. what about court reform? they brought that up. toward reform alone, if you take in the amount of -- what about tort reform? they brought that up. tort reform alone, if you take in that amount, it alone would be $25 billion per year. when you come out of the health care money is. there are a lot of things that the republicans have put forward that would help this situation. host: thank you for the call. in "the washington post" this morning the white house called for more broadband access to increase competition. these comments written in his letter to the federal communications commission, "the current technology policy arm is not competitive enough and wireless internet access could serve as a afford

to the united states this morning. he thinks there's about 100,000 casualties. other estimates as high as 500,000. what's your best estime right now? >> george, i don't want to hazard a guess. we know from the analysis we're doing with the teams that are on the ground there, that it's devastated. there are about 3 million people affected. thousands and thousands, don't want to put a number, but tens of thousands, we fear are dead. many thousands more injured. you know, when you look at the television pictures that you and others are broadcasting, you see all of this. but when you're on the ground, you see the roads that are totally impassable. an airport that was knocked out of commission. no air traffic control. trying to piece together the step-by-step, patient work that is necessary to minimize the loss of both life. and try to get people back into some semblance of normalcy, is just very hard. >> this is a country that's just going to have to be rebuilt from the ground-up, isn't i >> well, thankfully, the people of haiti are a resilient people. i've been going down there, i hate to say it

to investment banks. in my judgment the american people and the united states congress have a responsibility to know who got those loans, how much, and what were the terms. we have written to the chairman of the federal reserve board, myself, senator grassley, and eight others, to say, you now have a responsibility to tell us who got that money and what were the terms? his answer to us is i have no intention of telling you. that is not acceptable to me and should not be acceptable to the congressor the american people. and that's -- congress or the american people. that's another reason i will not advance this nomination madam president, i yield the floor and make a point of order that a quorum is not present. the presiding officer: the clerk will call the roll. quorum call: a senator: madam president? the presiding officer: the senator from maryland. mr. cardin: i ask unanimous consent that the quorum call be dispensed with. the presiding officer: without objection. mr. cardin: madam president, i first take this time to talk about former senator charles mack na thrc --mack was a true e best
which is a huge security problem when dealing with devastation of this scale. here in the united states during hurricane katrina we had general honore who got it to happen. the united states is sending 2,000 marines to help the u.n. peace keepers who have served as police in haiti in the past. a little over a hundred will leave today. what they will do is prepare for the arrival of another roughly 800 personnel tomorrow. then some 2,200 marines are being deployed to help with security as well as search and rescue and the delivery of humanitarian supplies, so important. >> we're going to work with the international peacekeepers under the u.n. to supplement them in providing security. they have been basically the police force. haiti doesn't have an army. they didn't have have much police force. it is being rebuilt by the united nations with our assistance. this is a country that's suffered so many blows. last year it was four hurricanes. this year an earthquake. it is hard almost to imagine. but the people of haiti are resilient. they are a hopeful people. we are going to do everything we
, because it offers the best path toward a world with the united states is not always operating as an anti-terrorist robocop." guest: to have allies around the world combating terrorism makes a good deal of sense. that does not mean we turn our backs on the mission in afghanistan or iraq. i do not think the president has suggested that we do that. this is not a world we are choosing, but a world wto which we have to respond to the alternative is to lose, and if we lose, that would encourage those who would attack as everywhere around the world to keep it up. i think it is a multi-front approach -- i think a multi- front approaches appropriate, and the idea that we would train other countries to meet this threat around world makes a great deal of sense. we need to uncover pots before they unfold, but we need to -- and cover plots before they unfold, but we need to take the war to the enemy in other parts of the world, so that they cannot choose the time and place of the encounter bridge we need to -- so that they cannot choose the time and place of the encounter. yes, it does make sense for
in the united states and the earnings of the big companies that are about to report. in fact, i regard it as an inverse correlation. the more they fire here, the more money they make. and the hirer their stock goes. given that business is so bad in this country and better almost everywhere else, i believe companies will be penalized with lower stock prices if they hire here and will rally if they hire overseas where the growth is. what matters during earning season is less earnings, and right now joblessness equals profits. it's a fact. when it comes to this kind of thing, getting political, making judgments whether it's the congress' fault for making things so darn confusing and difficult for small business, or whether it's the rich moneybag bankers that shouldn't make their pay, maybe they're the problem. all of those things just obscure what we need to think about as investors, which is how much money companies are making from not hiring people. case in point, caterpillar. see that one today? stock folded $3.79. it was a stunning move. a stunning move. talk about a company that's la
us coffee, getting us coffee. look, he was a united states senator, equal to that of kennedy. i'm glad kennedy was offended. of course the former governor of illinois, not only is he not blacker than president obama, he's a lot dumber than president obama. i mean, what we have here is what america suffers from. and that is cultural conditioning, which, in essence, manifests itself by undervaluing, underestimating and marginalizing people of color. it's a 20th century mentality that we can't afford to drag into the 21st century. >> what i don't get is here was harry reid supporting the president. he was talking about how barack obama would make a great choice as the next president of the united states of america. i just don't get, joe, that people even have these conversations in private, i can't imagine using those phrases, even in private conversation. it just seems dumb. >> that's because you're a decent person. that's because you have a certain socialization -- >> is it also because of my age? i'm younger. >> yes. yes. it is generational. you have grown up in a generation muc
. the companies that are rallying are divorced. divorced from the united states. and they aren't paying any alimony or child support. now, when you're on one of these money political shows, when you're discussing the prospects of the president and the democrats, you have to focus on the impact of job losses. and you know what you got to say! scary, sad. and you think all of these companies are deadbeats!
